New System

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I tried to love my AMD system, but it just wasnt able to do what I want. Sold it to my brother for a sweet price (in his favor). New system build (hopefully as early as this Sunday):

Intel SB i7 2600K
Maximus IV Extreme
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600 MHz
2 EVGA 580's
Silverstone Fortress FT02B
Silverstone 1000W PSU
2 WD 1TB Black
Thermalright Venomous X

If my place does not have that ROG board, I am not sure what I'll get...the flak jacket on the Sabertooth looks awesome, but seems counter-productive to heat imo. Any suggestions? What do you think of the build?

This is powering my 3D Vision with my 23.5 inch Acer monitor.

Kudos for going SB, I've encountered lots of people lately building new Bloomfield rigs which are great if you can get them cheaper than SB, but that isn't the case.

That Maximus Extreme is $300+ part isn't it? If I were you I would get a Gigabyte UD5 and put the savings toward an SSD and get a Noctua NH-D14.
